These are the youngest of all the Dow’s wood-aged Ports (RUBY, TAWNY & WHITE), having been aged on average 3 years in oak casks. These wines are carefully made from the finest grapes in the Douro valley. During the ageing process, the wines are tasted regularly and, when they are considered to be ready, they are blended with all the care of a premium quality Port, but are bottled when ready for immediate consumption. The result is a range of Ports with the fine balance and flavour, worthy of the Dow’s name. Dow’s Fine Tawny is a three-year-old blend aged in small oak casks at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. The barrel ageing produces a smoother and lighter style of wine than the Dow’s Ruby which is aged primarily in large oak vats and tonels. Dow’s Tawny combines subtle fruit with delicious velvety nutty flavours derived from the cask ageing. It is ready to drink and enjoy when bottled and does not require further ageing. Tasting Notes: Appealing tawny colour. Dow’s Fine Tawny manages to combine velvety smooth nutty and caramel aromas with delicious ripe fruit such as apricots, with hints of raisins. On the palate fresh, well balanced and with a long and slightly dry finish.

Dow’s pioneered the era of modern wine making in the Douro. The Bomfim winery was built in 1964 and was one of the first in the region to have total temperature control. At Senhora da Ribeira, Dow’s makes the Quinta’s wine by traditional foot treading in large granite lagares (square open tanks that are about 12 feet wide and about 3 feet deep) and with its new robotic lagares that mimick this traditional process. In 1997 the company built a new winery at Quinta do Sol. This highly innovative winery is the most modern in the Douro and is designed to produce the finest quality Ports. Dow’s wineries receive more A and B quality (the finest classifications) than any other wineries in the Douro. This unique position is a key factor in the outstanding quality of Dow’s Ports. The style of Dow’s Ports is more structured and drier than most other leading Port houses. This classic dryness is the hallmark of Dow’s and particularly with Vintage Port, shows outstanding style with maturity. Founded in 1798, Dow’s is currently 100% owned and managed by the 4th generation of the Symington family. For more information about Dow’s and the role of the Symington family, please visit.
